Friction and wear tests

The last two and a half weeks I've been doing ball on flat tribotesting. It may be the most boring material test in the world.

9:00 Prepare test, start test.
11:00 Check test
1:00 Check test
3:00 Check test
5:00 Check test
7:00 Check test
7:15 Test over, remove sample.

Now, I'm all for time intensive protocols, but the whole thing is completely anticlimactic. Usually during testing something breaks or changes, all this test does it put a tiny scratch in the surface of my polymers. Only one more week...
